Mack Brown coached at a time when Texas and Texas A&M still faced off annually, and he’s pretty well-versed in the rivalry.
He’s won and loss games against the Aggies, but he never lost a women’s clinic as he made perfectly clear while appearing on the Paul Finebaum on Monday. Finebaum asked the former Texas coach about his opinion on Texas A&M’s decision to suspend offensive line coach Jim Turner and special teams coordinator Jeff Banks.
“Well first, Paul, I’ve never lost a women’s clinic,” Brown said, according to the Dallas News’ Ezra Siegel. “We had 30 years of them, and there’s supposed to be a positive upbeat — more like a pep rally to talk and get ready for the season.”
The two coaches have been suspended for two weeks without pay for comments made during a women’s football clinic hosted by Texas A&M. Kevin Sumlin issued an apology for what the two assistants called “a failed attempt at humor.”
Brown agreed with Sumlin’s decision, but took it a step further.
“These guys got suspended, but to me, they need counseling,” Brown said, per Siegel. “They need to get some help to make sure they do a better job in their personal lives, so the players will learn better from them how to treat ladies.”
